Johnson, Melvin J. / History and my memories of Wind Lake Telephone Company
Preface, pp. 2-4 PDF (1.3 MB)
Well on March 3, 1902, Rev. Otto E. Schmidt called a meeting and invited Dr. Flett. He accepted it graciously and he invited him and about six to eight more men of the local community to come to a meeting at the Jacobson School. The Jacobson school was called that because Edward Jacobson owned that land and I knew Mr. Jacobson very well. That school was worthy, Colonel Heg Monument now stands there. That school was removed to make room for Colonel Heg monument. So that meeting was held there. We are going to give you those meetings now, verbatim as they were because we have the original books. They kept a good book in those days and they have good minutes, good records. We are going to give everything to you verbatim where it is absolutely necessary to follow everything that they did. There are times where we are going to have to eliminate it because it is going to require too much to get all of that established. If it is just a meeting between the board of directors, we might just skip it. We are going to bring up the essential things, the price of material, the people there that it involved and the contacts they made. We are going to start with the first one here from March 3, 1902.
